    Looks like Mancini was testing:

    Insigne-------Balotelli--------S. Verdi
    -------Pellegri---------Florenzi---------
    ---------------Jorginho------------------
    Criscito-Bonucci--Caldara--Zappacosta

    I like the attack. It is probably the most talented attack we can field. Technically those 3 are probably the best 3 the country has to offer.
    Balotelli - while having problems, is technically superior to Belotti & Immobile.
    Verdi---Not proven with big clubs, but he is very technically gifted, and completely 2 footed. His nickname is "Verdinho" because he plays like Brazilian...ie: he is very flashy.
    Insigne - We all know his is the best Italian attacker of this generation, which is definitely a bad thing.

    The midfield is unproven. The question is when Verratti is healthy can both Jorginho & Verratti fit?

    The defense is also very inexperienced with a lack of pedigree other than Bonucci.

    What technique do you speak of?

    Stu is overhated around here. he is good enough at what he does to be a starter for a team with mid table or possible Europa League ambitions that just need a hustler in midfield.

    Of course, that isn't good enough for Juventus, even for the bench. He simply shouldn't be here as a footballer but I do love the guy as a sort of meme player. He gives 120% effort every second of every game, the rick ross tattoo, the gifs of his hilarious hijinx and occasional heroics and of course when he told a 12 year old Napoli fan that he was $#@!ing his mom on twitter.

    PS, I also enjoy every headline of "Juventus star" Stefano Sturaro linked to (insert EPL club)

    Sturaro has decent technique. As in if you give him 5 minutes to line up a pass or a shot, he knows how to hit the ball. He hits it better than Matuidi I think, for example.

    His big problem is that he can't make decisions quick enough. He will see a 10 meter pass and when he goes to hit the ball, it's fine technique (as if you need it for such a short pass), but the timing is always off. Always.

    He should have gone to a team like Lazio. One thing that I believe is that if a player doesn't play consistently, they won't improve very much. People say that the training ground is everything, but It's only a part. By going to Juve, Sturaro guaranteed his role as bench player. He should go midtable to develop.
